This Brazillian restaurant is a great choice for families, super tasty food in a very relaxed and child friendly environment.
If you like Mexican I can confidentiality say you will enjoy the food choices at Las Iguana, spicy but not hot, tasty food.
Keith and I called in on Sunday afternoon and it was fairly quiet with a family celebrating a birthday tucked into the conservatory side, a nice area where the windows continue over the ceiling giving a lovely bright niche. Several large booths which can also accommodate a crowd make for a really family friendly venue.
We were seated in the back where we could see the barman mixing up the cocktails, they do have a good cocktail menu. We both enjoyed a Dark & Stormy, a rum based cocktail which was refreshing with lime and ginger beer and served in a jam jar. Great value too as we were there for happy hour which offers two for the price of one ( both cocktails must be the same)
I can’t remember what what Keith meal was called but the chicken and crayfish in a spicy peanut sauce was theatrically presented in a large bowl placed over a warmer, the more than genorous sized portion being kept hot until the end. I had a quinoa salad with the most delicious cranberry salsa, that really zinged , sprinkled with some tiny, fruity, flavoursome Chili’s and black beans. With carrot and parsnip crisps there were some serious flavours.
Keith finished with an Aztec hot chocolate fudge cake which is served with ice cream, sadly it was more a warm chocolate fudge cake but it tasted great.
The decore is bright colours, plastic chairs, vibrant tiling and nothing plush or breakable so that’s why I think it’s a great choice for families with younger children. The lavatories were clean although a little hidden away.
After our meal we found we had about 40 minutes spare time to kill so we ordered another drink, made with a sugar cane spirit I had it served with raspberry and crushed ice, Keith opted for the same but served with pear juice. It was nice to find something new and this friendly restaurant had a few surprise in store in both the food and the drinks menu.
A lovely layered coffee, rich but oh so sweet to finish, with the bill at £54. Las Iguanas was a great choice for dinner before visiting the Glee club.
